Success is a result, to moments of fruitful labour
Of the most successful people we admire today, we can be 95% sure, they did not stumble into it. Its a result of times of great effort.
If there is one person that you should listen to in life, let it be that man that speaks out of experience. With this in view, compiled this for you.
1. Start taking responsibility
Most people have excuses, or need to blame others when things aren’t working. But true success happens when we start to take responsibly and stop making excuses, when we start be accountable and we stop blaming others, when we start to say if its going to happen, it will happen because I made it happen. we have to make an effort to stop making excuses, what we must realize is excuses will always be there for you, but opportunities wont.
2.Make new friends who share in your dreams:
Old friends are not to be forgotten, all thanks for being there for us, however it does not mean new ones cant come in. My personal experience (the writer), thought me better here. Your old friends finds it difficult to believe in your new ideas. If they have known you to be a mathematician, they will always give you the support needed in mathematics. Once you have a change in plan, you loose their support, not because they don’t want to, but because they owe that support for someone else in their life. (they have nothing to convince them to support you)
Therefore you need a new friends now, who will know you for your new career and dreams, for you to enjoy that unsolicited support. You can make a quick reflection now, before you proceed to the next.
3. Exercise self discipline
Let me start this one with this story. In a vehicle, a preacher was singing praises, but the passengers were reluctant to join him. Out of offense, the preacher gave this insight, he said, “most of us will make heaven but we wont stay long there before we are cast out, because in heaven, praises are sung 24 hours, so if we cant learn how to sing now on earth, will it be then, that we will do it better”.
So imagine one Angel flogging someone out of heaven. Is that not hilarious.
Well, the point is this. Success requires a whole lot of self discipline. You don’t want to wait till you are successful before you start learning its rudiments. Most successful people you see today, started on time
5.Be more focused
Focus means we have to follow one course until we are successful. Stop getting distracted by the things that has nothing to do with your goals.
If you want to succeed, you have to stop being distracted by everything around you and be more focused in what you want to achieve, your distractions are wasting your time, and keeping from being focused
6. Wear a happy disposition
No matter how stressing your work is, nobody cares, nobody is interested in hearing. So frowning your face because of the stress, helps no one, it will even scare people from you.
Sometimes the things we are most afraid of are the things that make us the happiest.
7.Take no chances
A popular preacher said, when you leave a piece of land without cultivating it, you can be sure to have weeds (unwanted crops) and not the real crops.
So is the road to success, nothing just falls into place automatically, you are the one to fit them in. Though grace and luck plays a role at times, but most times effort is more mentioned than luck. Take the stress, leave no stone unturned as long as you can turn it. It may cost you some nights sleep, your money, your comfort, etc but you are on your way to glory.
